Sonora Review is run entirely by graduate students in the MFA program and undergraduates at the University of Arizona. Sonora Review accepts submissions in flash prose, fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. We only accept unpublished work. Typical response time is three months.

Fiction should be typed, double-spaced, and include page numbers. We are unable to read prose submissions that exceed 5,000 words. Please include a cover letter with your name, address, phone number, and email in the header, and a brief biography.

We welcome previously unpublished work from writers of all backgrounds and identities, particularly including people of color, LGBTQIA+ people, people with disabilities, members of religious minorities, people outside the United States, and all others whom traditional publishing has historically excluded. We believe your stories are valid stories, and we want to consider your work!
